User Profile
Okay I am on Orth-tri cyclen lo for the past six months every thing has been normal. When I started my spacer pills as normal all is well, I started having a really dark brown discharge, I usally have this before my period and after its always really light. This time things are a little different, It was dark an the discharge lasted for at three days and when the fresh blood appears its super light and thin and barely lasted a day I also have very tender breast and I'm going to the bathroom every ten mins. I was wondering could I be pregnant? I'm gaining weight, always tried some nesua and heigten in smell. I was at the hospital and had taken a bedside pregnancy test, (negative) but I've been with my husband after that point. How long before the pregnancy hormone is dected in urine. Should I take another test? Is this consider a normal peroid mine are nonething like this. I was wonder could I be pregnant? I

If you are taking the birth control pills regularly and according to the directions, there are very little chances of becoming pregnant (less than 1%). Irregular vaginal bleedings are not a sign of pregnancy. Rather, irregular bleeding is a side effect of birth control pills. It doesn't seem likely that you are pregnant but you can do another pregnancy test if you want. Home pregnancy tests become positive 10 days after a possible conception.
